Navion with a gas engine?

I stumbled across a 2008 Navion with a gas engine. It looks like it was an option back then so I don't think this was an after market rehab but I have never heard of a gas navion. Does anyone have any experience with one?

RE: Where is Winnebago in the Gasser lineup?

Good grief folks give Mondooker a break. I agree that over analysis leads to paralysis but some folks just like to think about every angle trying for the perfect coach. I happen to be a person who reads and re-reads instructions before using something new. My Wife just goes blasting off at full throttle pushing buttons or grabbing pieces and sticking things together. We both get to the end result in about the same time. As for coaches our first was a Coachman Mirada that we bought after a ten minute test drive and 10 minute inspection and then promptly jumped into the new coach and drove it 300 miles to Cedar Point and Back. It was a great coach and I would buy another Coachman in a heart beat. We traded the coachman off minus the front end when a monte' carlo decided they needed the front grill. next up was the Sightseer 35J that we have loved since we bought it for the bunks and the layout. We are now looking to downsize as our travel needs have changed and are considering a winne navion 24V our something similar. When I think of all the RV's we have had I recall my Grand-Dad who was big on Airstreams because of the rallies, telling me that none of them are perfect and you will always be working on them. They all shake themselves apart eventually. Well, all except our 1963 Nimrod tent camper that is still in the barn in great shape and I can't bring myself to part with it!!!

for those with sprinter type C's

We are considering a Sprinter type C. Are the outside storage bins sheet metal or are they plastic/fiberglass. We currently have a 35' class A that has metal bins and they are a constant battle due to rust. Thanks!

gen set question

We had extensive work done on the gen set this spring and all was well. This past weekend two things occurred. First the fuel gauge would delay registering after refueling for 20 miles or so, very slow creep from E to F. Second, the gen set shut down when we still were showing a half tank. (only had driven about 200 miles since last tank fill so am pretty sure the tank was registering accurately) My question is, is the cut off for the gen set at a 1/4 tank an electrical cut off or simply a pickup tube that can not suck below a 1/4 tank. As Always Thanks!

controlling music and a power point from a remote location

We have an ice cream shop Florida and live in Michigan. We have a camera system that allows us to monitor the shop remotely which got us wondering about what else we could do from afar! Specifically we have an on going issue with the kids wanting to hook up their phones to the music system to play "their music" a big no, no! We could easily secure the system in a lock box but we are wondering if we could actually control the music from our computer at home and be able to cue up music as we liked? The second question is we are going to be putting in an electronic menu board (tv with power point) Can we control this remotely as well? Any thoughts or ideas from the collective brain trust would be very welcomed!!!! Thanks!!!!

RE: what coaches have plastic/fiberglass storage bins?

Thanks for all the responses! It just baffles me how a company would use sheet metal that is not even galvanized when the cost per coach to use plastic or such would be a negligible cost difference (if at all).

what coaches have plastic/fiberglass storage bins?

After having spent the last eight hours removing the original sheet metal and then making a new HDPE bin for or Sightseer my wife and I started thinking about our next coach (years down the road) and wondered in any Class A's had plastic cargo bins. Any ideas?? Thanks!!

rusting out cargo bins

We have a 2008 Winnebago Sightseer 35J that we bought new and absolutely love. Unfortunately the angle iron holding the outside cargo bins together and in some cases the side walls of the bin are rusting out. We do use the coach four seasons but holy toot I would think things would hold together better than that. It is stored inside. The chassis is fine but now I am starting to wonder about things like the propane tank rusting and such. Any insight into rebuilding the bins and how long the propane tank is good for?? As Always, Thanks!

RE: 2008 Winnebago 35J storage bin latch/lock??

I answered my own question!!!! They are called baggage door locks. Who would have thought! $10 bucks at Camping World!

2008 Winnebago 35J storage bin latch/lock??

We live in Northern Michigan and as a result the nylon latch/catch on the outside bays are buggered up. I think there is probably a spring inside that is rusted up. I took one of the catches off today and it would be very simply to replace all of them if I can find a source for them. A quick check of Camping World's website turned up a goose egg. Does anyone have an idea as to where I can get new ones or even what the proper name is so I can keep searching? As always Thanks!!

RE: Michigan Fishing

Fletchers Pond AKA Fletchers Flood Waters will be good for pike. I know you are looking for a trip within six hours of Dayton however, The Les Cheneaux Islands in the Eastern UP has very good pike and bass (more small mouth than large mouth) fishing. We also have a strongly rebounding perch fishery (12-15" are common) LCI is about 9 hours from Dayton and includes the towns of Cedarville and Hessel, Michigan. If you come up you will feel right at home as the vast majority of our summer folks are Cincy Dayton Folks!

RE: 2012 Coachmen Mirada 34BH Heating Fresh/Holding/Grey tanks

Depending on your out side temperatures I would not be overly concerned with the tanks. We had a 2005 Mirada in the UP of Michigan that we ran for a lot of AAU basketball tournaments and unless you were pushing 10F or less for a good chunk of time we did not have much of an issue. The only time I recall freezing up was in Ohio with lots of wind and that was the actually the lines inside along the bottom of the bedroom wall. Took the cover off and a hair dryer did the trick. Since then we carry fresh water in jugs in the coach and use it for flushing and heating up for wash water.

Cost for brakes on a 2008 F-53

We have 65K on our 2008 Winnebago Sightseer and the front brakes are starting to grind. Any idea what it should cost to have them done? They are getting done regardless but I would like to have an idea what others are paying so I know if I am getting taken. If you see this post on the fifth wheel forum it is duplicative as I hit the wrong button. Thanks!

Cost to have front brakes done on 2008 F-53

We have 65K on our 2008 Winnebago Sightseer and the front brakes are grinding. Any rough idea on the cost of a brake job? They have to be done regardless, but I would like to know if I am getting taken. Thanks!
